To find the variation constant ( k ), substitute the given values into the equation ( y = kx ). Then solve for ( k ). Once you have ( k ), you can write the equation of variation as ( y = kx ). Given that ( y = 18 ) when ( x = 2 ), substitute these values into the equation ( y = kx ) to find ( k ). ( k = \frac{y}{x} = \frac{18}{2} = 9 ). Therefore, the equation of variation is ( y = 9x ).

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
